GAGE consortium

GAGE is carrying out qualitative participatory research in partnership with two Lebanese community based organisations, the Lebanese Organization for Studies and Training (LOST) and Developmental Action Without Borders (NABA’A), to explore the impacts of adolescent and youth programming and other services on adolescent empowerment and wellbeing.

Our research is also investigating the contribution of these programmes to social cohesion within and among the different communities in Lebanon. GAGE research involves the most vulnerable older adolescents (aged 15-19) from the Lebanese host community and Palestine and Syrian refugee communities, including married girls and adolescent mothers, girls at risk of early marriage, out of school adolescents, and adolescents at risk of joining armed forces.

We are working with Syrian and Palestine refugee adolescents in camps, informal tented settlements settings and collective shelters, as well as vulnerable adolescents from within the Lebanese community.
